Welcome to International Extension Programs of OSU Extension in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. We invite you to share ideas and experiences as it relates to International Extension programming in your field of specialization and Extension program areas.

With globalization and as we see more interconnectedness in a continually changing world environment, new challenges are created that force us to bring about innovative ways and means to tackle problems resulting in meaningful solutions for our clientele. Extension Educators in Ohio are able to share their knowledge for the benefit of the people of Ohio and beyond. We work closely with the CFAES International Programs in Agriculture office, Extension Africa Project, Farmer to Farmer programs (an Initiative of the USAID) and OSU Extension Joint Council of Extension Professionals (JCEP) Global Relations Committee.

The vision of the International Extension Program is to create, support and facilitate Extension programming opportunities in a multi-cultural environment for Extension educators and youth professionals to extend their knowledge and competencies to the people of Ohio and the world.
